Hair Inspiration: Faye Dunaway


Celeb stylist Chris McMillan wrote about the impact of Faye Dunaway’s hair in the Allure magazine I was flipping through at the nail salon the other day. I totally agree. Faye’s movie hairstyles were hugely influential and inspirational. Of course, her most famous look is the sleek bob she wore in the 1976 classic Bonnie & Clyde. It’s very similar to many of the smooth bobs we see on a million celebs, but it always reminds me of my all-time favorite bob on Nicole Richie.


Although, Nicole’s look is updated with longer bangs, of course.


In The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Faye wore an elaborately wrapped updo centered on the very top of her head. Very chic.


And perhaps inspirational for Madonna during her Blonde Ambition tour in the ’90s? Who knows. Her arms are certainly inspirational.

More Faye Dunaway hair inspiration after the break.


Also, big hats were major in The Thomas Crown Affair.


Maybe it inspired Kim Cattrall?


You kinda can’t tell because she’s all in bed with a super young Jack Nicholson, but in 1974’s Chinatown, Faye had real deal finger waves. Have any of you ever done them or had them done? Modified finger ways have shown up on lots of celebs over the years…


This hairstyle on Charlize Theron is a perfect example.
